The New York Young Republicans Club, the oldest and largest young Republicans club in the U.S., appeared to call for a coup in Brazil on Sunday night after their preferred candidate Jair Bolsonaro lost to rival and former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
The group’s Twitter account announced Sunday night, “We proudly congratulate @jairbolsonaro on his victory in today’s runoff presidential election. Today’s victory comes in the face of massive opposition; today’s election was riddled with fraud engineered by Lula’s supporters. This fraud will not go unchallenged.”
The absolute farce of a tweet was later followed by the announcement, “It’s time for action. Send in the tanks.” Twitter later deleted the tweet for violating its rules.
Read the full article. Next month the group will fete Marjorie Taylor Greene and Pizzagate cultist Jack Posobiec at its annual gala. Tickets start at $400.
We stand on the side of Brazilian People who advocate for liberty, prosperity, and good governance. We call on American and international organizations to recognize President Bolsonaro’s victory posthaste.
The media will tell their lies. We will speak the truth.
